Yeah, I think it's my favorite fuzz, but don't tell the MKI I'm cheating. :paranoid:

Thanks guys. :cheers:

It's got a lot of volume on tap. If you match the fuzz to where I had the volume set, that seemed to be unity. I love effects but as far as using them I'm a novice., haha. Yeah, I set the fuzz where I could still get a good range of clean to fuzz using my guitar volume. I can record a video here in a little bit with the fuzz maxed out.



The amp had a bit of hair on it, it's not completely clean with Humbuckers at that volume. The Olympic Custom Fuzz is on 100% of the time. The Octave pedal is switched in a couple of times. This was my fifth attempt and I accidentally clicked the Octave on then off, and then on later haha. It all works out though. I wanted to mix things up a bit. So if you this bothers anyone I'll make another demo without the Octave pedal. I had a cool recording going and my phone fell off the counter. :hihi:

I'm not sure how it comes across to you guys, but I think the Octave has this really cool bloom. Maybe it's sag n bloom? I don't know what that jazz is about. I didn't use a volume pedal or wah or anything. It's hard not to go off noodling into the sunset with these pedals. :smashed:

No problem. :) Yeah, with the fuzz at max, it's a bit heavier than I normally play, and with the Les Paul too.. Definitely a QOTSA vibe, one of my favorite bands.

Olympic Custom Fuzz and GE Octave! :badlove:

The Olympic Custom is essentially the octavia without the octave, right?

I'm not sure. I know the Olympic Silicon Fuzz is. I don't know the history as well as Stu does. I don't know if Jimi ever used a hybrid Octave fuzz or if it the hybrid fuzz, equivalent to the custom fuzz, was developed as just a standalone fuzz.
